The populist MTV Movie Awards always give fans a chance to celebrate not only the movies they love, but to get a look at the movies they’re planning to love. Last year, the MTV Movie Awards gave audiences their first look at The Hunger Games (it was Katniss firing an arrow! The world was never the same again), and this year they’ll be giving Bat-fans yet another look at The Dark Knight Rises. It will be yet another step towards reaching the critical mass where two-thirds of the movie will be completely spoiled as the marketing machine rolls on. I remember the good old days (2011) when people freaked out because we showed set photos featuring the Batwing.
Hit the jump for the press release. The 2012 MTV Movie Awards will air live on Sunday, June 3rd at 9:00pm ET/PT. The Dark Knight Rises opens July 20th.
